Bilateral Cultural Relations Germany - Nepal

Cultural exchange

A cultural agreement was signed between Nepal and Germany in 1992 as a framework for implementing numerous projects, some of them ongoing, largely aimed at preserving Nepal’s cultural heritage. Following the closure of the Goethe Institute in Kathmandu, the Kathmandu Goethe Centre was set up in 1997, on the status of which an agreement was signed in October 2001. German is also taught at Tribhuvan University in Kathmandu.
The Friedrich Ebert Foundation has its own office in Kathmandu. Other political foundations work together with partners in Nepal as part of their regional programmes for South Asia.
Germany’s image in the media is positive. A cooperation agreement between German broadcaster Deutsche Welle and Radio Nepal has been in effect since 1975. As a rule, several Nepalese journalists are invited to attend information programmes in Germany each year.
